Beware- Left Turns

The overwhelming majority of accidents whether in a car or on a motorcycle, are due to left turns where you get cut-off and t-bone the other car. Luckily, in this video I was driving below the speed limit through Coconut Grove and had plenty of time to react since I was anticipating getting cut-off.

However, in this case, the car was turning left from my right. When you reach an intersection and the car is turning from your left to your right, you have to be extra cautious because they may not see you for a host of reasons. One thing I like to do is the “shake and bake” (click it for video).  The movement of the headlight or even the motorcycle itself, makes it easier to be spotted. In the video, the movement doesn’t seem like much, but trust me, it is.

Be safe and feel free to share your stories with me. I will be more than happy in posting it on the blog.
